It has taken literally over five years in the making, but finally, with a pending release date of September 9, 2015, the scathing debut album of my thrash metal outfit, Angel of Sodom, will finally see it’s long-awaited release!

This album, entitled “Divine Retribution” is chalk-full of brutal goodness, featuring 10 original cuts that certainly won’t wear out their welcome!  “All killer, no filler” is our motto.  I painted and designed the cover myself, being a graphic artist.  Take a look…

Heavy on the riffs – and catchy, well constructed riffs at that – I have never had as much fun recording original material as I have had with Angel of Sodom.  This is doomsday in sonic form, with Yours Truly belting out the ode of a dying world with the force of an angel of destruction.  Clear and concise, you can actually make out the lyrics as they are verbalized, unlike a lot of thrash where it’s hard to make out the actual words amidst all the yelling and screaming.

Rolf Pilve of Stratovarius played the drums on this “Divine Retribution” album, as he was momentarily with us for a spell before moving on to Stratovarius full-time.  Our current line-up features Joonas Heikkinen on drums, songwriter Eero Tertsunen on guitar (and he also played the bass for the album) and me, myself and I as the lyricist and vocalist.  We had one helluva time finding a bassist to commit to our group for whatever odd and eternally mystical reason, so we went and produced the album ourselves sans a regular bassist.  Well, I think Eero did a great job filling in the bass lines also, so no gripes to be made!

Here is a foretaste of the upcoming sonic fury about to be unleashed on September 9th, as you will be able to download the entire “Divine Retribution” album at that time.  This classic Metal Church cover was left as an outtake and teaser bonus for y’all…

And for those who want to cross-reference with the Metal Church original:
